Those Web Novel /Web Comic numbers are mostly counting PV. At least most Japanese sites work that way.

Long running manga such as One Piece have 10,000-20,000 Page.So if a person read One Piece from start to end on a site ,it means 10,000+PV

you guys misunderstood... it's count view rather how many people view.. so somone who uptodate with the series would at least see it up to number of chapter.... that's how most webcomic count..


Oh I see that makes sense. Stupid me ahah.

Huh 9 billion views? What? Are we like in the 2300's or something? It has more views than there are humans actually alive, and not everyone should have access to the web either. What the fuck is this? Is this counting several views for single person?

I mean yeah there are a lot of great Chinese works out there that deserve adaptations. I can name over a dozen off the top of my head. But I'm mildly curious to see how this turns out. I mean it's fairly popular for sure, I think that view count gives that away. For better or worse I want to see how this turns out. The character designs from that poster does make for an interesting watch at least for me.

Another shitty chinese adaptation. It seems that the Japanese are eager to see the anime with those 37 followers on twitter.

> it's popular
> chinese market is their main market, japan is bonus (some chinese stuff do get popular in japan, liek azur lane)
> it's mainly funded solely by tencent, for their demand
> money talks

This gives hope for Tamen de Gushi adaptation. Hopefully with Japanese voice actors (Unlikely)

So this'll be Deen's second work for Manhua? As far as I'm getting? Though I thought Reikenzan was fun.
